Schools Akaal Takhat on Protocol. Tells Akaal Takhat that according to proper protocol Akaal Takhat should write to MGC and not to the Sangat and Gurdwaras directly. Tells Akaal Takhat the MGC is better than Akaal Takhat by telling Sri Akaal Takhat that MGC always act to safeguard the SRM whereas sometimes Akaal Takhat Sahib has failed to do so.
Tells Akaal Takhat of his idea to recruit Missionary College students as Granthis. See MGC letter dated 14/9/2017. This letter is written by MGC to Akaal Takhat in response to Adesh dated 7/7/ 2017 by Akaal Takhat addressed to the Sangat and the Gurdwaras of Malaysia whereby Akaal Takhat directs the Sangat and the Gurdwaras to boycott (muh na laun ਮੂਹ ਨਾ ਲਗਾਉਣ) those who create doubts and confusion (ਭਰਮ ਭੁਲੇਖੇ) and speak against Sikh History and Amrit Sanchar bania and directs the Sangat to be loyal and dedicated (smarpat ਸਮਰਪਿਤ to Akaal Takhat).
|Objectives: To promote and propagate the teachings of our LIVING GURU (JAGDI JOT) Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji and the teaching of all ten Gurus including Guru Gobind Singh Ji and in accordance with established practices of the Sikh.||Objectives: To propagate and implement Ek Granth concept (which rejects Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s bani). Ek Granth concept was first adopted and unveiled by Global Sikh Council at its AGM in 2015 in Paris (GSC website Constitution – Aims and Objectives).
MGC peddles and implement GSC concepts and programmes in Malaysia and ban Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s bani in Dasam Granth. Promotes and suggests new age Missionary parcharaks and Missionary College trained students as Granthis (MGC letter dated 7-7-2017)
|All the Malaysian parchar religious organisations and groups have declared their support for SNSM’s decision and stand. Letter dated 28-7-2018||Which parchar religious organisation or group support MGC on this issue?|
|Unity under the Sikh Rehat Maryada, the Guru Granth, Guru Panth and Akaal Takhat.||Unity under MGC and its Rehat Maryada which bans Dasam Granth bani (and our Ardas is from Dasam Granth)|
Now the Sangat can decide to unite under the supremacy and authority of the panth and Sri Akaal Takhat or MGC.
